Via a press release from the Hice campaign:

Washington, D.C. — Concerned Women Political Action Committee (CWPAC) has announced its endorsement of Jody Hice for Congress in Georgia’s 10th District.

Concerned Women PAC, established in 2002 by Founder and Chairman Beverly LaHaye, is affiliated with Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, with more than 500,000 grassroots members nationwide.

Jody Hice spent twelve years as senior pastor of Bethlehem First Baptist Church in Barrow County. During that time Jody developed two key skills needed by any politician to be effective: listening to the concerns of others and serving them according to their needs. In 2003 Jody founded Ten Commandments – Georgia, Inc. to raise money for legal defense to maintain a display of the Ten Commandments in the county courthouse. Jody then established Let Freedom Ring Ministries, Inc.(now The Culture and Values Network) to continue his defense of liberties. In 2008 Jody challenged an IRS code which would remove tax exempt status from churches if political issues were addressed from the pulpit. He has been married to his wife Dee Dee for nearly 30 years and has two daughters.

“Jody Hice is a passionate defender of American liberty” says Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women PAC.

“We have endorsed Jody Hice for Congress because he won’t just be a good conservative vote – but he will be a dependable conservative leader.”

Concerned Women Political Action Committee endorses Jody Hice because he plans to reform our current healthcare system with patient-centered free market solutions. He upholds the belief that life is the most central human right—beginning at conception and ending at natural death and he will work hard to defend it. Jody Hice will protect individual religious liberty and preserve the basic principles within the Constitution.

Concerned Women for America. The same people that don’t want evolution taught in Georgia’s schools.

Someone ask Hice his stance on science. He is the only candidate that routinely mentions Paul Broun (out of 7 running). Is science based on Lies from the Pit of Hell?

I mean, Broun was elected from the 10th a couple of times even though some seem to doubt it.

i’ve still yet to see proof he was ever sworn in….

Then ask yourself Harry why the other candidates never mention him. In the two events I’ve attended, only one is trying to link himself to the incumbent Congressman. That likely gets him in a runoff from a crowded field. But then look at this district, the one that was redrawn. The one that took NE Georgia – where those that speak of these lies from the pit of hell originate – and put it in GA -9.

Short answer is this isn’t Broun’s district anymore. Jury is still out on whose it will be. But I’m sure there are a lot of people that don’t necessarily want to give it to someone who is running against science.

I don’t know that Hice has indicated that he’s anti-science, just because he mentions the name of Paul Broun who couldn’t possibly have been elected to congress from Georgia.

I am specifically referring to his touting the endorsement of CWA, who led the charge to pass SB 167. Tonya Ditty, their state director, said because it failed, she worried that subjects like evolution would be treated in science classes as if they are settled issues. Add that to Broun’s very public “lies from the pit of hell” comment (and Hice’s overt claim to be his successor), and I don’t think it is out of the question to ask Rev. Hice directly what are his feelings on science in general, and how that subject should be taught in our public schools.

Harry March 26, 2014 at 12:35 pm

That’s reasonable, but you or somebody needs to give him the opportunity to discuss it from his biblical perspective.

Killer criticism Charlie…

Theocrats. Personhood people. It’s a sign of the times they didn’t mention traditional marriage, but wait. You can have the lot of them.

I got one of Hice’s robocalls yesterday. He seems to be a candidate for those who believe a constitutionally-limited government would somehow be a Christian one, as well.
